Benzai (14100) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2016
Sampled @ Borefts Beer Festival 2016, Day 1. Hazy amber color, average sized white head. Smell and taste malts, some hops though not very pronounced, decently bitter. Tastes like a hoppy bitter to me. Not bad, but I wouldn’t call this a Black IPA.

The taste is bitter, roasty, toast, earth, charred wood and peppery grapefruit with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Good flavour for the abv. Nice stuff.

thewolf (12079) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2012
Tap @ DØE Ølfestival 2012.
Pours red-amber with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma has peach, strawberries, roser, fine caramel. Medium carbonation, light dry and mild creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good dryness, strawberries, sweet resiny hops. Quite elegant, but probably more of an American Amber Ale.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2013
[10/14/13] Draught at Open Baladin in Rome. Very dark amber-brown color with a beige head. Aroma of citric and piney hops, some maltiness and a fruity note. Flavor has some sweetish maltiness with a bit of caramel, light fruitiness, a light roasty touch, citric hops with piney notes and a bitter finish, a bit grapefruity. Medium-bodied. Nice.

Dogbrick (11492) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Sample at the Badge-Whore Bowl (OSU vs AL) tasting on 01/01/2015. The beer is a dark brown color with some ruby around the edges and a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, hops and pine. Light-bodied with flavors of roast malt, resiny hops and a bit of citrus. The finish is malty up front with a piney hops aftertaste. I was honestly skeptical about an Italian Cascadian Dark Ale but I was pleasantly surprised with this above average brew.
